The parking lot of Marugame Boat Race Stadium offers a panoramic view of the Great Seto Bridge. This bridge system connecting the prefectures of Kagawa and Okayama across a series of islands makes for truly magnificent and breathtaking scenery. At a total length of 12,300 meters (9,367 meters across the sea), the bridge series is so long that it’s hard to fit in a single shot.

From Marugame Boat Race Stadium, you can also see the symbol of Marugame City, Marugame Castle. This 400-year-old fortress is surrounded by the tallest stone walls of any castle in Japan. Rising above the main gate, the wooden keep is a magnificent sight that takes on a soft and soothing ambience as evening falls. Its uniquely beautiful form, still in harmony with nature, remains perfectly preserved even now, four centuries later. Marugame Castle has been selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Castles.
